Good point on the change of release date. Totally forgot about that.

Are your sources "The Internet"?

The fact that whatever they're releasing is 3-minutes long - 30 seconds longer than most trailers - just makes me all the more confident that this is a behind-the-scenes featurette being mistakenly referred to as a "trailer." They're not going to release a 3-minute trailer five months before the movie comes out. That almost never happens. Don't get me wrong, I fully expect whatever it is to have a bit of new footage, but it won't be your typical trailer that plays in theaters. It will likely be the Rogue One equivalent of this:

Apparently there is a Han Solo book coming out next week as part of the aftermath series. Titled Life Debt.

He's in it on the same sort of line as Wedge in the last Aftermath, I think. He and Chewie will be central to the story, but the main characters will still be Norra Wexley and her crew.

Despite his writing style, I find that I'm looking forward to it.

I couldn't finish the written version due to the terrible writing style, but the audiobook for Aftermath was fantastic. Basically an old school radio drama with music and sound effects.

You would think he'd learn his lesson after being so adamant about when certain things would and wouldn't come out.

Yeah, I think it was your post about the audiobook being a better option that made me check it out in the first place. So thanks!

I used BES's handy index to see TCTTS' prediction on the teaser trailer's release for Rogue One. The day before it dropped, he wrote:
quote:
Btw, with confirmation that the Doctor Strange trailer is debuting next week on Kimmel (and thus will be in theaters with Disney's The Jungle Book next Friday), I'd say that basically solidifies the Rogue One trailer debuting with Civil War in a month. I was a little worried that Disney would instead debut the Doctor Strange trailer with Civil War, and push the Rogue One trailer to mid-summer (with something like The BFG), but it's pretty much set in stone now that in exactly one month, we'll be watching a Rogue One trailer in theaters.


Seems like Lucasfilm will do whatever they damn well please.

All I've been told is new footage July 15th, featuring lot more of Grand Admiral Nothrawn. Whether it's Trailer 2 or Trailer 1 if you think the first is...I should find out.

I'll put my eggs in the trailer basket, only cuz I like seeing TC defensive. But the logic is sound for a featurette.

Not meant as a dig at you. I really have no idea what to expect or when to expect it, and I enjoy your commentary. I really didn't think we'd go full hype this summer, but it looks like that is what they will do.

Do any of you think they will address the reshoots at Celebration?

What ever, in the sense that I think you said, do you mean; his writing style...seemed, well, completely... appropriate: by definition... to me!


Worst book I ever read!

Nobody (on the outside, at least) really knows the truth behind the reshoots, so we'll wait and see. There can still be some humor in the movie while delivering a grim movie from an overall perspective.

Aftermath: Life Debt drops today. Without getting into it, some prelim info leads me to believe that the Solo anthology film will NOT feature the events around the meeting of Han and Chewie.

Hope to read some tonight. But probably not much. Will read more of it----later in the week.

I read the first Aftermath, didn't particularly care for it either. There were several tangent chapters that had little to absolutely nothing to do with the primary plot of the book. My assumption was that this was to set up additional novels or tie in characters and back story to the Star Wars anthologies??

if that is the case, agree with you and those events are going to get flushed out in the novels
AliasMan02

Well, they weren't chapters. They were interludes. Most of them were just flavor, but others may play out down the road.

I assume Life Debt has the same.

I was curious as to when the two big SW Celebration panels were going to be for us in the states, so, if my math is correct, here's what we're looking at...


FRIDAY, JULY 15

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
Secret mission? What plans? What are you talking about? Find out, when Gareth Edwards director of the upcoming Rogue One: A Star Wars Story joins Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy and some special guests for a revealing can't-miss Rogue One panel!

Time:
- London: 16:00-17:00
- US CST: 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
- US PST: 08:00 AM - 9:00 AM

What to expect:
- Additional story and character details
- Potential new concept art and movie stills
- Some kind of three-minute footage debut, whether it be a be an extended trailer or behind-the-scenes featurette


SUNDAY, JULY 17

Future Filmmaker Discussion & Closing Ceremony
Get a glimpse of what the future holds in the Star Wars galaxy when Lucasfilm Story Group's Pablo Hidalgo hosts a discussion with filmmakers Kathleen Kennedy, Rian Johnson (Star Wars: Episode VIII) and directing duo Chris Miller and Phil Lord (the untitled Han Solo Star Wars Story) in what will be Sunday's must-see event at Celebration Europe. There are sure to be some surprises in store for the audience, so make sure you stop by the Celebration Stage as we close out the weekend's festivities on a high note!

Time:
- London: 15:00-16:00
- US CST: 9:00 AM - 10:00 AM
- US PST: 07:00 AM - 8:00 AM

What to expect:
- Potential Episode VIII title announcement
- Potential Han Solo spin-off title announcement
- Potential (and very minor) story and character details for both films
- Potential concept art and movie stills for both films
- Potential Episode VIII behind-the-scenes featurette


It doesn't sound like either of these panels will be streamed live online, though I imagine they'll be available shortly after. As for the Rogue One trailer/footage, I'd expect that to be online sometime Friday morning as well.

Looking forward to it!

I'm only 4 chapters (plus a prologue, plus at least one Interlude) into Life Debt: am I willfully lying to myself, or did Wendig ditch the annoying style everyone complained about so much? At the very least he dialed it back.
